Booed film brings JLo to tears...

Jennifer Lopez was on the verge of bursting into tears at the screening of her new film Bordertown, and the critics' response may have had something to do with it.

Critics have panned the film, with dialogue and massive plot holes cited as major problems, and at a screening at 57th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, the ending was booed.

In Bordertown, Lopez plays an ambitious reporter from Chicago who travels to Mexico on an assignment she hopes will get her a cherished overseas posting at her newspaper. At first cynical and self-serving, her character becomes increasingly concerned by the disappearance of hundreds of women whose graves are unearthed with alarming regularity, while the task of uncovering the truth becomes more and more dangerous.

The first ominous signs came at the press screening on Thursday afternoon, when the film was booed by the audience, apparently annoyed that director Gregory Nava had decided to make a B-movie thriller out of such a tragedy. Then there were boos during the official premiere on Thursday evening, and applause at the end was muted. J-Lo looked visibly upset.
